This mod requires the following mods to function

denikson-BepInExPack_Valheim-5.4.1502 icon

BepInEx pack for Valheim. Preconfigured and includes unstripped Unity DLLs.

Preferred version: 5.4.1502
RandyKnapp-ExtendedItemDataFramework-1.0.6 icon

Preferred version: 1.0.6
ValheimModding-Jotunn-2.3.2 icon

Jötunn (/ˈjɔːtʊn/, 'giant'), the Valheim Library was created with the goal of making the lives of mod developers easier. It enables you to create mods for Valheim using an abstracted API so you can focus on the actual content creation.

Preferred version: 2.3.2



This mod introduces two backpack models (thanks to Cinnabunn!) to the game. You can open them with a hotkey (i by default) and store items in them. It's an expansion on Aedenthorn's BackpackRedux mod, and it relies heavily on their precursor work.


  • Each backpack has its own separate inventory, and their inventories are preserved even when you toss your backpack to a friend.
  • Storing items in the backpack reduces their weight by 50% by default (configurable).
  • You can also configure how much they modify your carry capacity and movement speed.
  • Localization support. Please let me know if you want to add a translation for your language!
  • You cannot teleport with unteleportable items in the backpack.
  • Nor can you put a backpack inside a backpack in order to get around this limitation!


  • Should be installed on both server and on all clients. If the mod is on the server, it will disconnect clients without the mod.
  • All configs (except hotkey) are server-enforceable.


Feel free to show appreciation by supporting. :)

Most of this project is the result of the hard work of these awesome people!

Compatibility Notes

Please let me know if you find any additional bugs, issues or incompatibilities.

How to Install

  1. (Optional) Use a mod manager like r2modman or alternatives.
  2. Install BepInEx for Valheim.
  3. Install Jotunn.
  4. Install Extended Item Data Framework.
  5. Install this mod.

For manual install, you want to drag the JotunnBackpacks folder into the BepInEx/Plugins folder. The JotunnBackpacks folder should contain JotunnBackpacks.dll and Translations.



  • Added Quickdrop feature like in Outward!
  • Made the size configuration separate for the two backpacks (paddywaan contribution!)
  • Added Russian translation (thanks to Dominowood371 and Mi4oko!)
  • Dropping items directly from backpack inventory now updates player inventory weight (bug report)
  • Unequipping or dropping worn backpack now closes its inventory if it was open (bug report)
  • Cold/freezing protection is now configurable (feature request)
  • Rugged backpack now costs 2 bronze, so it's accessible early game.



Available versions

Please note that the install buttons only work if you have compatible client software installed, such as the Thunderstore Mod Manager. Otherwise use the zip download links instead.
